    Ok, I got the lenses (even though I had to wait for 'em!) Wednesday, and today was the first chance I've had to try them out.

    This was on the way home today. Shot it with the *istD and a Tamron 28-75 XR Di lens. Shutter speed 1/500 @ f/9.0 & 75mm.

    Tweaked a bit in PS to bring out the sun rays. It started pouring buckets just after this shot. I barely made it back into the car without getting soaked.

    Wow thats a great photo. I really like the light comming through the clouds at certain places as well as the stream looking things on the mountains.

    Thanks guys. This is pretty good, but the whole sky was pretty funky. Behind me the sun was shining down through popcorn clouds. Kinda neat. :)

    Trish- you mean my neck of the tall weeds. Ain't no woods 'round here man! Heck, come on out. We'll tell lies & shoot pics & whatever else feels good & isn't too illegal. :lol:

    z- look forward to seeing them. Been trying to get a sunset for a couple of days now, but the cloud cover has been too heavy to get anything good.
